Rialto Cafe Employee Relief Fund

In the history of our company, we’ve never imagined that we would have to close our doors due to an unprecedented event that the whole world is facing. Our restaurant has not only closed, but we've had to lay-off most of our employees temporarily. We are a team of friends and colleagues who spend the majority of our time together. When we're not home, we're at our restaurant, in short, we are family.

As anyone who has ever worked in a restaurant knows, it's what we live and breathe by. So, to have it closed is heart-breaking for so many reasons, but mostly for all the people who's livelihoods have been drastically affected. However, we are confident one day soon we will be able to open our doors again and we want to ensure every employee has a place to come back to.

Therefore, one way we hope to help our employees is by establishing this Go Fund Me page. Funds will be given to the employees who need it most during this crisis. We can assure your support, no matter how big or small will make a huge difference in someone's life. And for those that can make a  $500  donation to this fund, you will receive a $500 gift certificate to Rialto Cafe.

The world will be a different place post-COVID-19 across all industries in all areas of interaction and business. The Rialto Cafe will be back and we will bring the warmth and familiarity of hospitality our people have provided over the past 22 years to everyone who steps through our doors again. 

To everyone we've served over the last two decades, we thank you for your generous support and we look forward soon to the day when we can serve you again.
